Open to all applicants globally!

We are seeking an ambitious and nice senior full-stack engineer who shares our passion for building a great software company. This is a unique opportunity to have a major impact on our engineering team’s growth (we are about ten strong right now) by helping us continually raise the bar. You will be expected to collaborate with other engineers to solve complex technical problems and push us to deliver higher quality code at an ever-increasing rate. We firmly believe in the power of solid architecture, code design, and simplicity over brute force, which is why we do our best to hire 10x senior engineers. If you are seeking an environment where you get to do meaningful work with other great engineers, then we want to hear from you.

Responsibilities

  • Write and maintain front-end JavaScript code as part of a mobile-first web application, including UI components and state management logic, as well as back-end PHP and front-end network communication code (back end is approximately 10% of work).
  • Make decisions about code design, architecture, and refactoring to balance technical debt against delivering functionality.
  • Plan and lead testing for complex projects.
  • Review code and mentor other engineers.
  • Provide time estimates and participate in agile development.
  • Review specifications and work with PMs to implement lean methodology.

Experience

Required Qualifications

  • 5+ years professional application development experience
  • Experience implementing and testing advanced JavaScript code on a team as part of a production web or mobile application
  • Practical experience with MV* architecture (such as Backbone, Vue, React + Redux/Mobx, etc.), unidirectional data flow, and minimal class/object interfaces
  • Spatial/geometric reasoning ability — for rendering, animation, and image manipulation
  • Ability to quickly understand and work with unfamiliar complex code
  • Pro-active and clear communication is essential for this remote work position

Salary and Perks

  • Working from home makes it easier to focus on results and develop professionally while spending less time commuting. (See our opinion piece on perks and work-life balance at mlive.com.)
  • 401(k) plan, home internet reimbursement, and $3,000 / year in free Collage.com products plus employee discount for friends and family.
  • Collage.com pays 100% of the premium for full health, vision and dental insurance coverage for you and your family in a high-quality Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO plan.
  • Flexible work schedule and unlimited vacation policy (work hard and take time when you need it).
  • We’ll pay for any computer and home office equipment (within reason) that will help you work better.

About Collage.com

Collage.com is a 100% employee-owned, profitable, bootstrapped company with about 50 employees that has rapidly grown from $0 to $25 million in annual revenue since 2013. We're different from other companies: our innovative all-remote work culture was featured in a Harvard Business School case study last year. We're looking for ambitious, nice people to join us in our quest to bring great custom photo products to the world.

Unlike some of our competitors, we're not beholden to shareholders and we're not a giant corporation, so we're able to put our customers and employees first in everything we do. That's why we offer stock options, health care, and retirement benefits to all employees, encourage a healthy work-life balance, and offer a no-questions-asked satisfaction guarantee on all customer orders. We make sure to only hire people we think will be successful: we want you to set you up to succeed on our team, not fail!

Oh yeah: we don't have an office. And we don't have any plans to get one. Why? Well, do you like commuting? We don't. We're nationally recognized for our 100% remote team, with employees working together in states across the country. The entire company meets together in person twice a year in Ann Arbor, Michigan to get to know each other and work on strategy. Last year, our remote work culture was even profiled in a case study by the prestigious Harvard Business School (we are the first all-remote company they profiled).

The Interview Process

The goal of our interview process is to identify people who will be a good fit for our company and are talented, ambitious engineers. Because you will be working remotely, all of our interviews are done over the phone in close succession to move through the process quickly. We look for candidates with good written and verbal communication skills.

We ask all candidates to demonstrate strong coding ability at the beginning of our interview process. The questions are in Javascript and focus on applying general programming concepts (like concurrency and good code structure) in realistic scenarios that should be familiar to experienced engineers. We do not test for knowledge of esoteric language features, APIs, or algorithms. We prefer engineers who are smart and able to learn over those who are familiar with our exact tech stack.

During the interview process, you will talk to other engineers, your future manager, a product manager, and both founders/CEOs of the company. We believe in transparency, and will give you the opportunity to speak with anyone else you’d like to meet before accepting an offer. You are making an important decision, and we want to make sure you are fully committed to joining our team.
